Pensions
A pension administration service is available to academies as part of the Teachers Pension Scheme (TPS).

Asbestos Management in Schools - HSE inspectors visit
07 Nov
Following our previous circulation of the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) eBulletin - Health and Safety in schools; the HSE have commenced a programme of single issue inspections for the management of asbestos in schools. The inspections will assess the effectiveness of the management arrangements to control the risks associated with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). The inspections aim to visit a wide range of schools and governance arrangements. If your school has been selected as part of the programme, you will receive a letter from the HSE. If you receive a letter and would like advice or guidance please contact us srm.hands@surreycc.gov.uk
EpiPen and Epipen Junior shortage: advice for schools
11 Oct
There is currently a supply issue affecting EpiPen and EpiPen Junior. This is expected to continue for the remainder of 2018. EpiPen is an adrenaline auto-injector device used in emergencies to treat very serious allergic reactions to insect stings/bites, foods, drugs or other substances. The shortage may mean some of your pupils start using a different adrenaline auto-injector that you are less familiar with and/or carrying fewer devices than they normally do. You may have already started to notice this. Please read and urgently circulate this advice from the Department for Health and Social Care, which has been drawn up by NHS allergy experts.
